How does a mortise lock work?
A Mortise lock has four parts excluding the pocket or mortise you make on the door frame. The one controlling the activation of the bolt is the lock body which is fitted inside the pocket. Meanwhile, the one adding reinforcements to the durability of Mortise is its strike plate. The handle of your Mortise lock is called the lock trim, whereas, the keyed cylinder is where you will insert the key to turn the bolt inside the lock body.
